Little Growers Experience
Children love growing things and we want to encourage them. We will go for a short walk around the crops and show them what the plants of different fruit and vegetables look like when they are growing. We will be tasting as well to show how much better freshly picked fruit and vegetables taste. We will help them pot up a Bells Farm Shop plant to take home with them to transplant into your garden – a strawberry plant, bean or potato for example depending on the time of year.
The cost is £5 per child (under 8’s to be accompanied by an adult)
